Our camp is staffed by some of the greatest former athletes in the world. Each day we feature one former Olympian and/or elite coach. Our coaches build character and confidence as they share about perseverance, teamwork, and goal setting. Olympic athletes will prepare campers for workouts, competitions, and setting goals for their track and field career.

Junior Camp (ages 6-12 years)
Junior camp emphasizes running technique, basic track and field skills, and learning a variety of events. Each camper will learn how to pole vault, sprint, throw, jump and run. We host a track meet on the last day of camp and each athlete will receive a Stars & Stripes Certificate of Achievement.

Senior Camp (ages 13-18 years)
Senior camp is centered on small group instruction in technique, nutrition, and training for specific events. Our coaches go beyond the basics and fundamentals, instructing campers based on their age, experience, and goals.

Our coaches are well-versed in the best coaching and training methods and are excited to share that knowledge with our campers. Events include pole vault, shot put, discus, sprints, long jump, high jump, javelin and distance running. Athletes will receive three full days of comprehensive training, technique and drills. We compete in a camp-wide track meet on the last day of camp.

Come to camp ready to learn, set your goals, and make your next track season a success!
